Spend a fantastic weekend at the Ironfest in Lithgow NSW

Every year I visit I wear some strange costume and this year mine is some sort of ancient soldier armor.
The theme of the fest this year is "Wild West" hence the mismatch Akubra hat Very Happy

While in the fest, I sells knives with my friends the CreativeMan, but I do take some time to make me a "Dog head" or Cuttlers hammer with a 25 kg power hammer. Much easier then bashing it with hand hammer.
I also watch an awesome display of Katana quenching by my friend Jezz Foster - one of the very few katana sword maker in Australia.
Here is the link to video of the katana quenching youtu.be/5XI-ulHP-WA

Definitely very interesting to me to see how the steel bends due to its internal stresses when subjected to temperature differential.

Looking good there Gelan. I would have loved to attend this show, but Lithgow is a bit far for me to travel.

My sword is made of aluminum with all the edges blunted.
